Brew Moon Black Hole Lager 8/20/08 (on tap, Brewpub. Pours black with tan head. Dark chocolate, hops, black coffee, and roasts in the nose. Flavor is similar to some lighter stouts Ive had, but evident lager-qualities help avoid style confusion. Maybe my mind is playing tricks on me in hindsight, but I do remember that this beer never got truly bitter, so Ill say that the mid-palate features some sweetening malt, almost a licorice flavor. Overall, this is a solid, flavorful brew, probably tops from this brewpub.

padrefan98 (854) - (San Diego) Santee, California, USA - MAY 31, 2007
Sampled at the brewery and I believe this to be my first in style. Medium brown in color, with a surprising smell and taste of chocolate, metal, and malts.

fordest (2470) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - MAY 29, 2007
Draft at brewpub. Very dark pour with a decent head. Roasty aromas with a decent flavor that really profiled the Black Patent malts. Not Bad

swanmann (739) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 18, 2007
Taster had a very chocolatey aroma, even from the sample glass, roasty. Nice black apearance w/ hazlenut highlights and a creamy off-white head. Mild chocolatey bitterness with slight acidic astringency and a quick finish. Very good

chadzter (94) - huntsville, Alabama, USA - JAN 28, 2006
Sampler, pours Dark Black with a thin brownish color head. Creamy full body with a milk chocolate texture that has a hoppy bitterness to it. Ending with a light wood taste. I enjoy this more than the rest in the sampler.

This beer tastes like a stout (roasted black patent taste) without the body, and like a schwarzbier without the smoothness; strange, and not much more
